Use of NEXIS in a medical research library


, : Use of NEXIS in a medical research library. Medical Reference Services Quarterly 9(2): 21-39

The NEXIS online system is used a great deal in business and law libraries, but has been virtually overlooked by medical librarians due to their perception of the system as expensive and difficult to search. The changing health care environment has placed new demands on medical searchers for just the type of legal, business, governmental, and news information found in the full-text files in NEXIS. Through the recent introduction of News Plus software, NEXIS can be searched as never before by those unaccustomed to full-text search techniques. Besides simplifying the search process, the new software has cost-saving features since search building and file selection are accomplished offline, and several activities may be done simultaneously. NEXIS via News Plus should be seriously considered as an addition to the repertoire of online systems accessed by medical librarians.

The integration of sensory information between the cerebral hemispheres is important for many perceptual tasks. Unilateral lesions induce a strong suppression of background and evoked activity in the contralateral areas of cortex as well as a prof...

The effect of the addition of ouabain to the nutrient solution was determined on resistance, potential difference (p.d.) and H+ secretion rate. In NaCl media, 10-3 M ouabain decreased significantly the p.d. from 25.6 mV to 16.1 mV in 30 min and to...
